and first of all, i would like to say that my name is washington and i'm here to at another time my horn and say without a doubt that we african americaings and negroes black are in a state of mainly you don't hear my leaders or preachers come up here and saying that and that is a question that puds as wells me too and i suggest that supervisor to encourage your colleagues to have ecome and have a hearing in the fill more where the government said they need to have a renewal and here, we have a public housing and the agency is corrupted and a lot of thing are corrupted and that housing a lot of our african america community and then we had the redevelopment community and so the mayor is restructuring two giant agencies for the 20 last 20 years
redevelopment and housing authorities which is housing a lot of african america community. and wd is seasoning out rfp's for efor what the helm, i don't know and we have a community that doesn't have a mother-in-laws association label, also blacks on the leaders account and the mayor said that the city is in a big bend -- well lord have mercy he just don't know we have been sweep like by a broom and we have racism on both side we have white people saying that there is racism and there is racism for years, black history month, we have been displayed and replaced because of our race and something has to be done. you must do something..
>> thanks next speaker. >> good day supervisors my name is robert green. i would like to say that i do not own firearms and i do not rise to the opposition combining date from the your resolution and fbi assault weapons are been responsible for barely one half of all firearm related murder over the last eight years and virginia tech is a reason to support senior feinstein's legislation and the outcome would have been a little different if two rounds would have been used instead of one. only fully autonomickic weapons are truly webs of wor war but senator feinstein's elaboration annual deals with semi automatic weapons and based primarily on the way they look and i don't know if it's possible to show
on image on the overhead and there are manufactures who make firearms with and without a pistol grip and this is an example and it's available with a traditional ripe stock and a pistol grip ask it can be urea useful for people who have limited mobility strength and detection tare tie and the parts are interchangeable and one would be an assault weapon while the other would remain legal and finally there are several type graphical errors in the proposed resolution and it uses the wrong title to senior's feinstein's resolution and i usually urge you not to pass it. >> thank you next speaker my name is virginia bareet and i'm with the anti-pathology s s poems for the movement and
i'm a member of the poet's brig gate and alhando and i was happy to here that supervisor mar attended the inauguration this sunday day in a desire to bring more poetry to city hall and to the city in jeep i have brought a small poem to read read and i hope this beginning a weekly practice here and this was written in support of occupy. the ability to fly. gray sayingels are lined up like bankers in suits along the jag ed edge of the old coastal road now slipped into the sand. winnings held tight at their side, they stair out at the waves as it's trying to earth as
contain if the [spelling?] market will bring a highly yield and that the ocean is a continuous flow of give and tack while the bankers think of agreed agreedy's sake of only the ladder of take and take what a difference the ability to fly can make thank you, and i urge you to bring more poetry into the schools and i teach in mar inand they have stooded grades sen through 8pm and i have also taught poetry in san francisco but very little there is not enough money for it and the teachers cannot fit money into their curriculum and so i would like us to add poet 33 this grades seventh through eight in san francisco. thank
you.. >> tom gilbert richmond apartments a reclarification. a long time ago the cup a is half full and half empty and my category is that the broken cup has been reglued and taped and i'm happy to be able to real here because people in my category are not able to reach for this microfop and use it and try to speak in then and is carry thoughts. those are all precious drops. i'm trying to -- when i come here and talk about how silence and quiet in our neighborhood, we don't need to have it robbed by buildings that make noise 24 hours a day and i'm happy to come here and speak for two minutes but i would be happier if it was
three minutes. don't get me wrong on that and i'll whether as be happy when this passes and it's a proved and so what we are doing here is greatestness and freedom of speech and thank you for being here for that and wo weeks ago when we were here the public comment became poisonous and kind-of painful almost torturous and until i die, i'll refer to that moment to when i was saved by the bell but that also brings up a little element. another piece of greatness the separation of the church and state and for the people who were here or heard it on television last week, that should be on you-tube and that is exactly why. we want separation of church and state. and i'm running out of time, could i have another minute,
please? sir you used your two minutes, thank you very much. >> we need to enforce the same time limit for every individual here so i appreciate your patience with that. >> already supervisors first i would i want to welcome norman 83 and we look forward to your participation here and i'm here in my role as had he been and secretary of our mep health board to let you know about our next pete meeting that has general public interest to invite you to our next meeting at 6:30 p.m. one zero one groove street, 300 and we are going to talk about a b 716 and it's a do not lie list for bart and it's a state law that the l.a. transit system has decided not to adopt it but bard has decided to adopt
it to develop criteria about who and who cannot ride bart because of the criteria is if you seecy if youfying on the trains you won't be allowed to ride but some of the other criteria about interfering with passengers and creating a commotion is fuzzy and they have not decided how to train their plies yet and they are look into it and they have presented to the san matt at a yo health board [spelling?] and a now san francisco about how to enforce the mental hetero list and so i invite you to come, it's wednesday, february 13th 6:30 p.m., one 01 groove street, 300. i hope you will tell your
constituent about it in your newsletter and i hope you can a at the particular time thank you very much. >> next speaker please. . >> good afternoon supervisors i notice you are all sitting in your seats and there is one person missings and i know why he is not sitting in his seat and that is because he doesn't want to hear about the dead man johnson and my only comment is that police and leaders back east are discussing civil rights issues from 1999 and the 70 of san francisco should be ashamed for how it has deliberately avoided a dead man's a gay dead man's suspicious death. second degreely, i would like to thank
wills tock and chronicle for the following quote that appeared roughly a week and-a-half ago. " but then pop said who want to have to see if it moves having to carry the mayors water all the time," she hit it right on the nose, perfect description of district four. but i always thought that district four was suppose to represent district four. but may be i have i'm imbuesed and also, i'll like to say one comment on mayor's long-whipped speech yesterday what happened to the topic of city hall corruption, i guess you are not suppose to mention it but then, i have to mention it. thirdly, if everybody doesn't want help re alvair resident to get a pension, i suggest the mayor kindly donate his pension to mr. alvair resident but then, i would also
caution that he would have to get the wife's opinion about that decision and then the last thing that i would like to mention is that new orleans mayor better look up that subject because first it was -- [inaudible/incomprehensible] thank you very much. >> let me ask any other members of the public that wish to speak in general public comment? seeing none, general public comment is over madame clerk can you read the a comes opp item on the calendar. >> yeah, a single role call vote on these items in a member object a matter can be removed and considered separately. members would anyone liability like to remove any of these sums items. >> president yierks supervisor chu, aye, supervisor cohen, aye, supervisor farrell, farrell aye
